the development of new technology is bringing much more rapid change to the system that can't be disruptive. i think embracing these changes will allow a much more efficient utilization of energy resources. the challenge before us is to enable the system to be more efficient through the utilization of technology and foster the development of a diverse set of competitive energy resources while at the same time and sure we have the power and reasonable rates for consumers. as a result of the technology we are experiencing a supply of natural gas and resulting gas prices at the lowest since 2002. this is changing the economics of electric generation resulting the retirement of older and less efficient units and most recently some nuclear plants. the generation being built is primarily combined gas plants, wind and solar generation. this appears likely to continue. driven by a significant degree the economics on low-priced gas and the development of more productive when the turbines and panels. the other drivers are little to no growth, public policie polics the standards, compliance with the rule

's true that government cannot prevent all of the downsides of the technological change and global competition that are out there right now, but we've also seen how government action time and again can make an enormous difference in increasing opportunity and bolstering ladders into the mdle class. >> an enormous difference? i haven't seen it, have you? maybe he's talking about fdr's new deal or social security or something like that, but presently? big government and high taxati seem to be holding back the private sector and job creation. and the left seems to want it that way. yesterday, "the new york times" editorialized, "the emphasis on cutting taxes and spending that began in the reagan years is a direct result of economic insecurity now. it has led, for spm, to education cuts that have harmed children in low-income school districts. reversing those decisions can still have an enormous impact." but under president obama, america's spending more money on education than any other nation in the world. also, taxes have been going up. and we have record debt. but the left wants mo

that looking to use this cost-effective drone technology in the coming years. good for amazon. i congratulate them. the f.a.a. is charged with the responsibility of coming up with ways to regulate drones for safety reasons. but who's watching out for the privacy of american citizens? congress has the responsibility and the duty to set clear regulations for all drones in domestic use. absent legislation to prevent surveillance of americans, companies could use drones not only for delivery but other ways that in my opinion violate the constitutional right of privacy. the issue of concern, mr. speaker, is surveillance, not the delivery of packages. that includes surveillance of someone's back yard, snooping around with a drone, checking out a person's patio to see if that individual could buy or needs a new patio furniture from the company, photographing swing sets, pools or the people that are in the pools or even looking into windows, all of that could be done with the use of drones by corporate america or by individuals. this could all be possible. so congress must ensure that the expanded us
